In February 2009 began a project led by the founder of Netscape, Marc Andreessen, with the sole idea of creating an Internet browser with full integration of social networks. If we consider that Andreessen has pioneered Internet browsers with Mosaic in the early 90s, we can expect a huge surprise for her new project: RockMelt
The behavior of Internet users exchange and Marc Andreessen has understood. Facebook and Twitter are now used by millions of Internet users, is somewhat RockMelt renewal web browsers!
All I can say is that RockMelt is based on Chromium, the proposed free web browser which is based on Google Chrome, and is currently in private beta. You’ll need an invitation to try it …
Apart from this, we find the simplicity of Google Chrome with some interesting additions. On the left side of the browser RockMelt, you have your Facebook contacts and on the right side you have your bookmarks. With your Facebook contacts, you can share links, videos, chat with friends and do most things you do with Facebook but without going on the site.
You can update both your Twitter and Facebook accounts, interact on various sites, videos, photos and all the things you find on the Internet.
On the right of the browser, where your Twitter and various other bookmarks are placed RockMelt soon propose other social media like YouTube, Flickr, etc..
Besides being a social tool, its creators announce a speed improvement and research.
Here is the video presentation for you:
What do you think of this RockMeIt? Had you test it?
I have read lots and lots of articles about this browser and its functions, but I am yet to try this browser since I didn’t have an invitation. If you’ve one do send it to me.
You can get invitation from the official site of RockMelt.

I tried this browser and it is very crisp and bug free. All though not a revolutionary one The browser is really good.
RockMelt is just awesome. Though the side tab should be more detailed. Though full credits to the NetScape co-founder who developed RockMelt.
